The Wedding Planner

Marsha was feeling a little tense as she was preparing for her daughter’s nuptials on Sunday. She had a preoccupation with all of the details and feared that she would run out of time before the big day.

Unfortunately, Marsha couldn’t just create more time, and with no time to waste, she reached out to her husband, who amid all the pressure Marsha was feeling, sat in the living room binge-watching “Stranger Things.”

“Bob, you need to shut off the TV, get up off your ass, and help me out with the wedding before I go completely insane,” Marsha said, tears streaming down her cheeks.

“Of course, babe,” Bob said. He turned off the television, stood up, walked over to Marsha, gave her a big hug, and said, “You can count on me to be the wind beneath your wings.”

Marsha smiled. “Living with you, Bob, is never dull.”

    The newest season of Stranger Things was way too short, and it left so many unanswered questions, which was disappointing.

    Well… Stranger Things and with Vecna making bodies turn the way they do… wow! I’m not getting off the couch.
    I see a fan of Stranger Things in you, Fandango?
